The Unexpected Einstein tackles many unexpected and rarely covered aspects of Albert Einstein's life, thoughts, and personality. This fast-paced and informed account strips away the myths, rumors, and outright lies that continue to circulate about Einstein to offer readers a uniquely intimate portrait of the living, breathing man. Brian draws upon an impressive array of original sources including recently discovered documents and interviews-many previously unpublished-with Einstein's relatives, colleagues, lovers, enemies, lifelong friends, and relative strangers. In their own words, these men and women share their memories of the "father of modern physics" and offer insight into his character. The profoundly complex man who emerges from these pages may be best understood in his own words: "I live and feel puzzled, and all the time I try to understand."
